What Is HMI software?


Human machine interface software allows industrial end users to monitor and control equipment using a computer. This can include operating pumps and motors or displaying temperatures and fluid levels on a screen.

What is SCADA Software?

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are comprised of HMI software that uses a network to communicate with distributed remote telemetry units (RTUs) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to control remote hardware and retrieve logged process information. For example, municipal utilities can use radios to centrally monitor and control water distribution and wastewater collection sites spread over a wide geographical area or an Ethernet network to oversee multiple treatment plants.

For those systems utilizing a central computer with a Graphical User Interface software package, a database must be created that allows the users and operators to monitor and control the system. The most common SCADA packages being used with our systems are Wonderware and VTSCADA products. Global Data Engineers have developed in excess of 200 databases using these SCADA packages. 



Today, industrial companies need a more efficient and flexible way of developing, deploying and maintaining the software applications used tomanage and improve operations. GDS provides configuration, deployment, communication, security, data connectivity and other services. 


Why struggle with multiple “point solutions”when you can build and deploy the same capabilities from a single, integratedsoftware development environment or “platform”? HMI Platforms interface to hundreds of field devices and plant systems, allows extensive re-use of engineering, eases maintenance burdens, provides broad scalability and extensibility while accommodatingnew computing technologies such as virtualization. You can finally deliver a standardized set of industrial applications thatencapsulate your best practices and proprietary knowledge to every one ofyour sites. It is revolutionary; it is the next step.
